How do I populate a listbox (on a form) with all users from my domain? I have some vbscript as a starting point that will list the current user, but how do I get this to iterate through each user and populate my listbox? My plan is to have a seperate listbox for each location. Also I'm unsure if this script will work directly in ASP.

' use ADSI to get name office location
Const E_ADS_PROPERTY_NOT_FOUND = &H8000500D
Dim objDSE, objUser, varPropValue, arrPropValues, i
Dim strLoginHours, strByte
Set WshNetwork = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network")
Set objDSE = GetObject("LDAP://rootDSE")
Set objUser = GetObject("LDAP://CN=" & WshNetwork.UserName & ",CN=Users" & "," & objDSE.Get("defaultNamingContext"))
thename = objUser.Get("sAMAccountName")
location = objUser.OfficeLocations

I woult suggest using ADO driver for Active Directory instead

Here's sample code:


Dim rstUsers
Dim objDSE, strNamingContext

Set objDSE = GetObject("LDAP://rootDSE")
strNamingContext = objDSE.Get("defaultNamingContext")
Set objDSE = Nothing

set rstUsers= Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
rstUsers.Open , "SELECT sAMAccountName FROM 'LDAP://CN=Users," & strNamingContext  & "' WHERE objectClass='user' ORDER BY name", "Provider=ADsDSOObject"

While Not rstUsers.EOF
   'do whatever you want
Whend

rstUsers.Close
Set rstUsers = Nothing


rstUsers.Close

Hi, I have tried your response, but I get a "type missmatch" on this line;

rstUsers.Open , "SELECT sAMAccountName FROM 'LDAP://CN=Users," & strNamingContext  & "' WHERE objectClass='user' ORDER BY name", "Provider=ADsDSOObject"

any ideas? PLease note I am running this with wsh before I migrate it to ASP so I removed the server in server.createobject

Oops, typo. Remove comma after rstUsers.Open
Should be

rstUsers.Open "SELECT sAMAccountName FROM 'LDAP://CN=Users," & strNamingContext  & "' WHERE objectClass='user' ORDER BY name", "Provider=ADsDSOObject"

Also, you would want to change ordering.

rstUsers.Open "SELECT sAMAccountName FROM 'LDAP://CN=Users," & strNamingContext  & "' WHERE objectClass='user' ORDER BY sAMAccountName", "Provider=ADsDSOObject"

Hm, and another error. Remove last "rstUsers.Close".

My apologies for this mess, I remade this sample from my project, so there were a few errors during copy-paste-editing :o/

this may seem like a stupid question but how to I refer to each user? e.g. wscript.echo sAMAccountName
